5:14pm
on cbs5. here's dennis o donnell. . special preview of tonight's 49ers game coming up here on cbs-5. >> thank you, guys. alongside jeremy newberry, i'm dennis o'donnell. right now at the university of phoenix stadium in glendale, arizona, the 49ers and cardinals are set to kick off? 15 minutes. san francisco has won 10 of the last 12 games against division opponents and face a cardinal football team that has lost three straight. 49ers have a one game lead over
5:15pm
the cardinals. for more on a little tension right now between the teams, let's go to kim in arizona. >> reporter: the 49ers have won 5 of 6 against the cardinals. it is the 6th game that gave arizona a little swagger that they can go toe to toe with the new bullies of the nfc west on and off the field. >> especially going up against a team we hate with a passion, i cannot wait to stick it to them. i know they are crabbing about me. we are a rival team. hate is a strong word. they are a division opponent. we play them twice a year. it is a great rivalry. hate is a word i would not news. >> reporter: it is no surprise, that you do have to wonder how much sleep john skeleton lost
5:16pm
thinking about the 49ers defense, that allowed the fewest yards in the league and are ready to pounce on an offensive line line that has allowed the most sacks in the nfl. >> kim, see you after the game. alex smith was probably playing the best football of his career but has taken a few steps back. look at the difference in quarterback rating. the first five games over 100. the last two, 58.8. only one touchdown since the last giants game. and four interceptions compared to one in the first five weeks. should there be reason for concern right now about alex smith? >> sure. he has been struck -- struggling the last couple weeks. we are talking about two of the best defenses in the league. i think he will rebound.
5:17pm
that is particular -- typical of the style of football he plays. i think we'll see that tonight. he will take a dunk and dunk and underneath throw. >> exactly. and john skeleton will start at quarterback. this is a football team that started the year winning four straight and now struggled, three straight losses. this guy is part of the reason why. >> he is a huge part. part of the reason he is struggling is because the offensive line last not given him time to step up and throw. he struggled when he had time. he is not very accurate with the football. he cannot get it down field. everybody is jumping the underneath rattle. i think the 49ers will take advantage of that. >> if you are the defensive coordinator right now, will you throw a blitz at him? what do you do? >> you don't have to blitz. you can beat him with the four guys up front. you don't have to make a living, larry fitzgerald will
5:18pm
burn you if you leave him one- on-one. he is one of the better guys in the business. they are good enough up front to get them their own. >> you played smany years for the 49ers. your coaches would not allow you to engage in trash talking because your coaches never wanted bulletin board material. obviously ken when i say than -- whisenhunt has a different philosophy. >> monday night football is the biggest stage in the country. number 93 will have a bulls eye on his chest, if i had an opportunity to take a questionable shot on him and bury him, i would take it. >> that's what i like. a true jeremy newberry. >> i don't have to be so sip low ma particular now. >> still to come on 49er preview, we sit down with jim
5:19pm
harbaugh. next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,
5:20pm
5:21pm
for kickoff...another primee game for jim harbaugh...i ct up w he prepares fo . counting down to kickoff, another prime time came for jim harbaugh. i caught up with the coach as he prepares for his first of two monday night games this season. >> i saw a number today that was interesting, that the nfc west teams, all four in the nfc west are all within the top ten defensively and it is a very physical game against seattle. do you see this division as a much more physical division, defensively, than it was last year? >> well, it was pretty darn physical last year, i have to say. it was physical out there the other night, our game with seattle. i thought it was a great game, great football game.
5:22pm
whether you are talking college football or pro football, one of the best games that i had a chance to witness in the last decade. both teams played their guts out. these guys got out to a 4-0 start. and skelton, they only had 11 points in there. he did do damage against the 49ers defense the last time they met, what does he bring to the table as a quarterback for arizona? what do you have to watch out for? >> really, with all the quarterbacks, you know, skelton, tall, you know, a lot of really good pocket presence, good stature in the pocket, they all have strong arms and very good receivers to throw to, and they will fire it in there. so we did get hurt last year with some big plays. that's what you don't want to
5:23pm
have. you don't want to give up the big play and you want to tackle. now do you know if the team is a good defense? you want to know if your team is a good defense, they tackle. >> bernie davis was saying he didn't catch the game against seattle. he noticed the, quote, explosive route, unquote, that opposing defenses were dropping a corner and providing a little help over the top, taking the routes away. do you see that and as a coach or maybe you talked to roman, does it become a game of chess? are you forced to counter that to get him involved in the offense? >> well, there is no doubt about it that teams are taking some measures to control vernon davis, to limit the damage he can do. that is their prerogative. he is always going to be involved because he may not catch a pass in a game like he did this past week. he had one of his best games blocked so well in the past.
5:24pm
he was blocking a 350-pound man. and that really helped our offense move the football on the ground because with vernon blocking the defensive end it allowed us to block the remaining interior linemen and get up on the backers. vernon is a great player. other teams see that. you cannot hide that. they are going to locate him, find him. so i can talk to greg about it. it is hard to hide number 85. he does draw a crowd. >> reporter: he does. based on my advice, you know, in the media. >> you can't wave a magic wand and say hey, greg?
5:25pm
>> reporter: yes. great stuff. >> that is jim harbaugh. at 11:00 wednesday, programming reminder, set your time schedule, take lunch early, coverage of the giants parade will begin right here on cbs-5. one more look at that historic night last night in detroit. tigers...only one team finis pletely sati . >> reports from last night inside the wild clubhouse in detroit following the sweep of the tiger. only one team finishes their season completely satisfied. for the second time in three years it is orange and black. >> we are so excited. we had so many factors in here. hunter was not even here a few months ago. >> it is like it was meant to happen this way. it has been a grind all year. we stayed the course and are world champs. >> it is amazing how things come back around, for us to
5:26pm
play like we did against this great club, i could not be prouder. >> reporter: it is a great story. the only thing that makes it grater is if the 49ers end up in new orleans for the super. so you have football and baseball. >> okay. football coming up now. keys to the game? >> first and foremost, frank gore has 11 games against the cardinals. he averaged 115 a game, 11 touchdowns. we have to get frank going early. then we have to take care of the football. that is the running backs, the punt returners, everybody. don't turn the ball over, the only thing they have on fence is larry fitzgerald, he makes them go. if he is doing it, we're in trouble. if not, take him out of the game plan make him beat you on the running became and we're all right. >> the one thing i disagree with you, i think you go after the quarterback and put the pressure on skelton.
5:27pm
they have a weak offensive line. put the pressure on arizona. >> he will have a tough time getting a second and third read and you can get there with the first guys. if you play good coverage and have enough guys, they will get to him. they are not playing good up front. we should be able to get to him and play good defense, don't let larry fitzgerald rundown the field by himself. >> see you after the football game. we'll see you right after the game. see you later, everybody. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,
